Tottenham could demand four players in Man Utd swap if Solskjaer opens transfer talks

Published

Manchester United’s pursuit of Harry Winks could see Tottenham demand four players in return for the midfielder.

The Red Devils have already agreed a fee for Jadon Sancho and are now turning to the other areas of their squad that require reinforcements.

Among them is a new central midfielder, with boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen to change to a one-man holding formation.

Currently Fred and Scott McTominay are the first-choice defensive midfielders, but Solskjaer does not trust either one to act as the sole holding player.

That means he will be forced to dip into the transfer market in order to boost his options, with Winks one of his top targets for the position.

While he fell out of favour under Jose Mourinho, Winks is still well thought of at Spurs, meaning the Red Devils could be forced to offer players in return.

Having only just ended their search for a replacement for Mourinho after 72 days, Spurs are only now turning towards their transfer business for the summer.

They have several gaps in their squad which need to be filled and here, Daily Express Sport looks at how they could fill four of those in return for sending Winks to Old Trafford…

Diogo Dalot

One of the most pressing areas of need for Spurs is at right-back, with Serge Aurier having failed to impress yet again.

To replace the Frenchman, Tottenham could demand Diogo Dalot as part of any deal sending Winks north, following his successful loan spell at AC Milan.

While he failed to convince Solskjaer he can be the back-up to Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Dalot clearly impressed those at the San Siro and he could be the man to solve Tottenham’s right-back woes.

Eric Bailly

With Toby Alderwieweld set to depart this summer, Spurs will require at least one new centre-back.

That signing could be Bailly, who has impressed when fit enough to play alongside Harry Maguire at the heart of United’s defence.

With Raphael Varane set to arrive, Bailly could see his game-time limited, potentially giving Spurs an opening to demanding he comes to London in return for Winks

Jesse Lingard

Arguably the best evidence for how a loan spell can resurrect a career is Jesse Lingard, who starred for West Ham in the second-half of last season.

Lingard had been frozen out at United, but scored nine goals for the Hammers to help them secure a European qualification place.

He could be the perfect man to provide competition to Delle Alli as the central attacking midfielder, with Solskjaer reportedly reluctant to return him to the United fold.

Anthony Martial

While he has never lived up to his reported £58million price tag, Anthony Martial has proven that he can be a goalscoring threat in the Premier League.

The Frenchman was United’s top scorer just two seasons ago, but has plummeted down the pecking order since.

An attacker of his talents would be welcomed at Spurs, with Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son consistently the only outlets.

Chelsea

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.

Manchester United and fellow Premier League clubs are counting down the days until they can strike-up further business in the transfer market. Erik ten Hag welcomed six players to Old Trafford during his first window and they have all made their mark in the starting XI.

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all quickly become mainstays, while Antony broke a record set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored on Sunday night. That 2-1 victory over Everton also saw former Real Madrid player Casemiro handed his first Premier League start for the club.

Martin Dubravka was the other recruit, signing on a season-long loan from Newcastle.

With one eye on January and future windows, meanwhile, United are understood to still have Frenkie de Jong on their radar, while elite clubs from across Europe will be queuing up for Jude Bellingham should he decided to leave Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the near transfer window.

Bellingham plays alongside plenty of Chelsea stars on the international stage with England, so let’s hope they can put in a good word to try tempt him to the Bridge.

He’s an all – action central midfielder that offers so much both offensively and defensively.
